    How big a axle in a Trek series 4 can be run

    I am ordering new wheels for mine and want to run heavy axel's,or can I lightly drill the frame for larger diameter?. Thanks!

    IF you need heavier duty axles than what came on your "4x00" series bike.......you bought the wrong bike.

    Sorry, but they are entry level XC bikes......not designed to be jumped and dropped.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    Very bad idea! The above guy is right- if you are doing that kind of stuff then you need a true dual suspension bike like a Fuel Ex.
    Save your $$$ and move up when you can. Keep your 4500 for light and fast courses.

    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    You need a hub that will accept a 10 x 135mm axle like :
